Wat Phra Ngam, Ayutthaya Overview

Translating to the "Temple of the Magnificent Buddha Images", the construction of the Wat Phra Ngam is said to have unearthed many Pre-Ayutthayan sculptures of crouching deer, bronze Buddha and earthen Buddha. Since the King was most pleased with the earthen Buddha sculptures, the Wat came to be dedicated to Buddha images. The National Museum houses some of the artefacts from here as well.

Also known as Wat Cha Ram, the exact timeline of Wat Phra Ngam remains unknown. The main attraction here is the eastern entry gate covered in a Bodhi Tree. A perfect photographic spot, many locals refer to this spot as the "Gate of Time". Hosting an elevated principal chedi, this moat-covered temple also has several satellite chedis and an ordination hall. With four entries, the Ubosot houses two front entries and two rear entries.
